In view of the MCD trifurcation, the BJP Legal Cell Delhi, has opened three control rooms in each district i.e. North, East and South alongwith one Central Office at BJP Pradesh Office at 14, Pt. Pant Marg to assist the MCD candidates in filling forms specially women (50% strength) who will be fighting election for the first time. The Control rooms will be operative with immediate effect till the completion of elections from Tis Hazari (North), Karkardooma (East) and Saket (South) courts from 10.00 am to 6.00 pm. They will be manned by atleast 20 volunteer advocates each with Notary Public in easy reach. The advocates will go with the candidates to file nomination papers on individual request also.
Meanwhile Shri Anil Soni, Convener BJP Legal Cell has written a letter to Delhi State Election Commission to immediately remove the photo of Shiela Dikshit Chief Minister of Delhi from the website delhi.gov.in as this is the only link to Delhi State Election Commission for natural quaries, nomination forms and election commission instructions etc.
Her photographs on the front web page is unfair and not in accordance with level playing field and violation of Model Code of Conduct. The State Election Commission, Uttarpradesh has the photo of the Election Commissioner.
BJP Legal Cell has also demanded that biggest metropolitan Police Department in the country, Delhi Police, which is bigger than the police departments of London, Paris and Tokyo has only about 5000 women (approx. 6% of total strength) of about 83,000 officers(as reported by Police in 2011). With MCD elections where 50 percent of 272 wards are reserved for women, there is likelihood of law and order problem if sufficient women force is not deployed. Hence we have asked the Police Commissioner to immediately recruit new women force or get force from outside States to suit the strength of women candidates and their supporters.
